Analytical Spectroscopy

As one of the primary analytical techniques used, ASA has a range of spectroscopic instruments to offer depending on sample type and analysis required.

For standard liquid sample analysis, the available instruments include:

  • Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS) starting with the cost effective flame models through to the Zeeman furnace systems.
  • Inductively Coupled Plasma spectrometer (ICP-OES) with high sensitivity sequential and simultaneous models.
  • UV- Visible Spectrometer with double beam high stability systems that can be fitted with a large range of accessories.
  • Discrete Analysers (DA) for affordable nutrient analysis.

For solid sample analysis:

  • ED XRF Spectrometers
  • Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) for total periodic table analysis in seconds with the option of elemental mapping.
  • Laser Ablation (LA) for coupling to the front end of ICP-MS or IRMS.
